SUPPORT FOR OFFICE 2013
Helpful guides and videos
Enhancements to the Software:
- Easier to read: Word's new-look "Read Mode' (under the View tab) makes browsing documents easier.
- You can now edit some PDF documents directly in Word
- Presenter view: The Presenter view for secondary screens gives you far more flexibility, including the option to zoom into specific points on a slide. Note this is a view from dual monitors.
- Go widescreen: Bring your slideshows into the modern era with a 16:9 widescreen layout. If your display is a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, make your slides 16:9 too, via the Slide Size drop-down under the Design tab.
- Pick colors: From the Fill option through PowerPoint 2013 you can use the Eyedropper tool to pick a color up from elsewhere in the presentation.
- Use multiple windows: Excel 2013 joins Word and PowerPoint in opening each file in a new window (and taskbar window), making it easier to arrange them on screen.
- Get recommended charts: Use the Recommended Charts button under the Insert tab to see a selection of charts that Excel thinks suit the data you've selected.
- Preview chart styles: Select a chart, click the brush icon and you can preview changes to the chart style and colors without making changes. Note that in the picture the mouse was only hovering over the chart type, nothing had been chosen.
- Reply inline: Replies now stay right in the reading pane. Click the Pop Out button if you want to go back to the old way of working.
- Make navigation more compact: Outlook's key components (Mail, Calendar, People (formerly known as Contacts), Tasks) now stretch all the way across the bottom of Outlook's interface. Click the three dots on the strip, choose Navigation Options and tick Compact Navigation to revert back to the icon approach.
- Preview links: The new navigation strip comes with a built-in preview feature. Outlook's new navigation strip for Mail, People, Calendar and Tasks includes a preview feature: hover over any link to see it.
And so much more!
